Logging commands and output

I'm looking for a CLI utility that will capture all the commands you type at the Solaris CLI (and their output) into a file. I'm sure it's called "scripter", but I can't find anything on a command called scripter.

Does anyone know of a such a command?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi fpmurphy.

Thank you for the response. The script you suggested will sort out the "input" part of my query, but I'm looking for a command that will log all input AND output.

I'm sure such a commands exists. A Sun engineer once asked me to run it, because he wanted to see the exact input and output on my system.

MySQL Found the answer

I found the solution to my problem. The command is called script. Basically when you run it it will start a new session and capture all input and output into a file in your current directory.
